The findings of a recent human trial have proposed that space drink, developed for protection of astronauts, can actually help prevent signs of ageing, including wrinkles, within four months.
It has been revealed that concoction, known as AS10 was developed as a nutritional supplement by NASA to help prevent the astronauts from damage caused due to high level of harmful radiations outside Earth’s atmosphere.
Further, it was demonstrated that the drink contained a mixture of fruits, including cupuacu (a Brazilian fruit), acai, acerola, prickly pear and yumberry, to provide the body with essential vitamins and photochemical.
The trial conducted by a team of researchers at Utah University subject that AS10, can help reduce wrinkles, blemishes and sun damage and the effects can be witnessed after four months.
During the course of the trial, these researchers initially took visa photographs of 180 participants. Further, they analyzed the photographs under different types of light exposures, so as to determine condition of low lying skin layers.
While on the other hand, the participants were subjected to drink two shots of AS10 daily. After four months, photographs of the participants were again taken. It was discovered that by the end of these four months, a reduction of 30% in case of UV spots and a reduction of 17% in case of wrinkles, was administered.
